Week 7 18.05 - 22.05

English

This week Team, we are going to look at writing a NON-CHRONOLOGICAL REPORT. A report is a non-fiction piece of writing which is full of facts and information. The title of your report will be 'Our World'. You are going to use all the information you have found during our topic lessons to write your reports. Remember to click on the star icons for all the slides and resources.

 

On Monday you are going to read a report about the United Kingdom and answer questions

On Tuesday, you are going to focus on writing questions

On Wednesday, I want you to plan your report. Remember this just has to be notes.

On Thursday, I want you to write the first part of your report. 

On Friday, I want you to complete your report and check it through carefully.

 

Go into each folder below to find out more about your daily learning!

Spelling

We are on WEEK 1 of our work on the ‘a’ which makes a sound like a short 'o' (as in hot).  

 

This week's words have the letter ‘a’ which makes a sound like a short 'o' (as in hot). Please help by practising these words with your child. Your child is learning how letters can make different sounds.  

 

You can find this weeks spelling sheet as an image below, but also as a word document you can download and print out. If you can't print, just write the words out in your spelling books. 

 

Week 1
• Monday – Thursday: Week 1 spelling work consists of children practising these words (using a writing pencil), using the look cover write check method. They can also choose to practise them using one of the ‘fun ways to practise your spellings’ if they would like to.
• Friday: Test – ask someone at home to test you on all of the spelling words you have been practising. Reflect on any words you found tricky – make these words/rules your focus for next week.


Week 2
• Monday – Thursday: Week 2 spelling work consists of children including each word in a sentence then writing the sentences in their spelling book. They can also choose to practise them using one of the ‘fun ways to practise your spellings’ if they would like to.
• Friday: Test – ask someone at home to test you on all of the spelling words you have been practising.

Maths

This week we are going to work on learning how to tell the time!

 

We are going to carry on doing new learning, so we will be working in our Power Maths books on certain days. When you click on the link below you we see a presentation for each day. Work through the slides and then work on the questions I ask you to do in your Power Maths book. Don't go further then I ask, as this will be learning for other days!

 

On Monday, we will be learning to tell the time to the hour and half past the hour.

On Tuesday, we will be learning to tell the time to quarter past and quarter to the hour.

On Wednesday, we will be learning to tell the time in five minute intervals.

On Thursday, we will be learning about how many minutes there are in one hour!

On Friday, we will be calculating durations of time.

Topic

This week Team, we are going carry on learning about Geography. So far this term we have looked at the continents, oceans and countries. Today we are going to focus in on capital cities. In particular, the four capital cities in the United Kingdom.

 

As always team, I would like you to open and then work through the presentation below. This week's challenge is to tell me all about one of the capital cities. You could create a promotional poster, a mini video documentary, or draw a mind map full of information.

Physical
